the fish exists!

at least sporadically.

i'd go on a rant here about pain, except i think i've already stated most of my thoughts on the subject, & i'd hate to repeat myself.

today is one of those days where you can insert "f--king" before anything & it applies. try it.

f--king Indiana--for those in the know--is finally acceding to the wisdom that is Daylight Savings.

f--king Harry Potter is getting an early reading for kids in Edinburgh. while i think this is a magnificent idea i resent the exclusion of yours truly from the event, just because i'm too old. (& not in Edinburgh, but that is a mutable fact.)

f--king pigs: draw a pig that will symbolize your personality. yes that's correct, your personality in the form of a pig. charming, no? several thousand individuals have already been transformed. into pigs.

f--king Don Quixote may be resurrected again. actually this is a good thing but i've got a rhythm going now. besides, f--king Good Omens has not been. (thank you for reminding me, machine.)

f--king popular culture. must Star Wars be everywhere? & we all knew this would happen to somebody. (thank you Phylos for the heads-up.)

f--king Neil Diamond has a new album in the works. thought you'd like to know.
f--king fish are weird, & so alien sometimes. f--king fish.

& f--king Mars had "a wet & violent past", if you can believe it.

i wish i was able to move my f--king head without agony.

28 little fish:

I had major problems on my neck and went to an ostéopathe (no idea what that is in English, but I'll look it up): i now worship the guy, is there any chance that it would help?
And oh yeah, swearing? My.

Anne: "osteopath"
(this is why learning other Romance languages is so much damn easier than learning fricking Japanese...)
(and p.s. of course I bow to your superior multi-linguacity even so)

Jenn: fucking Indiana. you're telling -me-. I grew up there. I thought having that many mosquitos in the summers was -normal-. you go outside around dusk and you can -hear- the fuckers, millions of tiny wings. years later, I'm in Costa Rica in the damn jungle during the wet season, and I'm like, "where are the mosquitos? there aren't any mosquitos." I mean, there were mosquitos, but few enough they were worth killing. in Indiana, there's just no point in swatting them.

if an osteopath is like a chiropractor or an orthopedist, i've had my share of experiences.

indiana baffled me. how could a place so far inland be so f--king humid?

what bit of indiana did you experience?

I lived in the northern part. the flat part. my town had 3500 people and fourteen churches. lived there from third grade to high school graduation, then got the fuck out. haven't been back in over a decade.

I briefly thought of going back for my 10year reunion. then I found a message board on the internet with people from my class talking to each other. oh jesus god they were exactly the same. cured me of that urge right quick.

There was a documentary about Gilliam's Don Q on the BBC last weekend. He had an astonishing run of bad luck and a lesser man would have given up.

Does the world really need another Neil Diamond album?

Blogger anne swam up to say...

jenn see: no, it's a lot more subtle. (i'd been srewed over by a chiropractor or equivalent as well). You think they're not doing a thing, but you feel soooo much better afterwards.
monkey0: thank you and thank you. Who said translation was a difficult job, huh...

indiana, eh? why the sudden interest in indiana? what a state!

nothing but corn & churches.

they've finally succumbed to the will of the nation & agreed to practice daylight savings. yet one more thing about IN that boggled me whilst i was there.

i really don't know that the world does need another neil diamond album.

i have very fond memories of dancing around like an idiot in the living room to "hot august night" as a child.

besides, he's working with a hip-hop producer & it's mostly acoustic. i have to say i'm curious.

yes, poor Terry Gilliam's near-biblical (& very Quixotic) travails in trying to make the film were made into a documentary, which was the only thing released. poor man.

so it's down to only AZ as the only state not participating in daylight savings - i guess that makes sense - even Indiana is better that AZ

oh and jennsee, darlin', you forgot a major one: f--king work

f--king work is a whole nother tangent. coming soon to a fish near you.

wow, this was f--king interesting :) love it! i have those days and using that was feels so damn good! great blog. i like the other one as well. great photographs!

(came via transience - comment that caught my attention was you comparing her to j.winterson. i have also told her the same thing!)

note to self:
add winterson link to fish.

don't forget to get your umbrella out of the trunk on the way to get champagne.

(this goes for the rest of you fishies too.)

f--king drawing my little pig made my f--king day!

Oh star wars-why oh why must Lucas always attempt to script actual discussion between characters-he really needs help with the drama. Everything else is fine but please tone down the love scenes and "evil doer" glare. As for the saber mishap: I frankly would be disspointed if any popular "billions of dollars" movie didn't cause teens to go out and do something incredibly stunad-ish. I am sorry it resulted in injury though.

As for Neil Diamond-no, there is no need for another album.

Seems Mars and I have something in common.

I love the fishy responses triggered by interview happy people.

well, hawaii has an excuse, i mean, come on, it's HAWAII...

who wants to know what time it is in Hawaii? it's just, y'know, time spent in Hawaii. nuff said.

oh yeah. i never got to answer you on that, jenn. winterson was quite a comparison. highly appreciated, though she's more da bomb than i am.

5:50 AM  
Blogger jenn see swam up to say...

i dunno, not to be like, "no you're the best" but i've read a fair amount of your stuff & you seem also to be da bomb.

i think one of my favorite things about Winterson is that i've lent "sexing the cherry" to a whole lot of people--it was the 1st one of hers i read--& every female who read it thought it was a beautiful, somehow serene novel, & every male handed it back with some kind of twitchy, deeply disturbed response.

ok, drawing the f--king pig thing, kinda f--king creeped me out. For example:
Facing right, you are innovative and active, but don't have a strong sense of family, nor do you remember dates
